(AvHerald:) A Shandong Airlines Canadair CRJ-700, registration B-3080 performing flight SC4752 from Guilin to Zhengzhou (China) with 69 passengers and 7 crew, suffered a hydraulics failure taking the nosewheel steering system out while on approach to Zhengzhou. After a smooth landing the airplane had to stop on the runway, but could not be towed off the runway.

30 airport workers needed about 2 hours to manually push the airplane off the runway.

Not the passengers, but no doubt the Daily Mail’s (cough) editor thought that would make a much better story.

No ‘lifter’ tugs in China then ?


Probably not small enough to fit under a CRJ.


The daily mail and faux news have teamed up? Now that’s an axis of evil.


Looks like something I might see in the Onion…
